Been running the HD as a more focused all mountain, enduro tyre on my Anthem 29er, up front. On the rocky and technical sections on Table mountain it has insane levels of grip. Received a very short notice entry to W2W, so did some xc riding on this tyre. Rolls remarkably well, no issues with folding etc. Placed top 5, so don't think it hindered me much more than my usual RR tre up front. Also, where you can see multiple Stans spots on my RR always, I am yet to notice one after all this riding.
